The new range of services from Phoenix Contact is aimed specifically at machine operators; if operators make modifications to their machines or link several machines together, they may technically be classed as manufacturers.
This means that they are responsible for the conformance of a machine that has undergone major modifications and for a series of machines. Phoenix Contact offers comprehensive consultation and analysis services. As such, experts from Phoenix Contact share their expertise on how to proceed in accordance with the law. Operators can evaluate their machines or systems based on lists of topics with concrete criteria.
If machines are already linked together, an on-site analysis is performed to ascertain whether there is a series of machines and whether, therefore, a conformity evaluation is required. In addition to these services, machine operators also receive guidelines relating to any subsequent measures that may be required, or else confirmation that no further action is required.
